Last night the Linden Eagles headed to Brighton High School to compete in a Quad.
We wrestled Brighton first and lost (12-58).
Coaching Staff said, “the Team took on a loaded Brighton Team, ranked 4th in d1, but truely came ready to wrestle. The team gave their best effort against Brighton. We are a young group overall, but the kids went toe to toe against Brighton I was happy with their effort.”
We wrestled Howell second and lost (37-38)
Coach Summerfield said, “We came out flat in our second dual feeling sorry for ourselves after the Brighton match. As a coaching staff and team we focus on making improvements each day. This team has done that every time they wrestled until the Howell match. The kids did not come to wrestle in the second dual. I have to tip my hat to Howell, they got the win, but I was very disappointed in the Eagles performance. We will regroup and I can promise fire in this teams belly next time we step on the mat, January 6th at Bishop Foley. Their are no excuses for our performance in the second dual. Time to get to work!”
